The Nissan Sentra entered its seventh generation for the 2013 model year, boasting the same design language found on the Nissan Altima, a new platform that sheds about 150 pounds from the car’s overall weight, and a new 1.8-liter four-cylinder that delivers 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. Up front, the car as a new trapezoid-shaped grille, and larger wraparound headlights. The side profile is sleeker than before, and the rear end us a sportier appearance. Inside, the new Sentra has a soft-touch dashboard and armrests, available leather seating, and optional Maple wood-tone trim – features that are new to the compact sedan market. All told, the new Sentra is rather upscale for its respective market and with a starting price below $21,000 for all trims, it’s a fine competitor in the market.
